I can't help on you on your specific query, but you ought to know that
you're entitled to a free update: we're now on Stata 9.2. Type:

. update q

to roll it. It may just be that your problem goes away along with Stata 9.1.

Whereever you go and whatever you do, just remember this. No matter how
many like you, admire you, love you or adore you, the number of people
turning up to your funeral will be largely determined by local weather
conditions.
